|内容：||Born in a suit --
House of women --
Twenty thousand verses --
I had begun to shout --
A man who speaks with a tongue of gold --
Enough of fallen heroes --
Please find me, I am almost 30 --
A long time shaving --
How to court a lady --
The dust of a long sleepless night --
The tao of cowboy --
O make me a mask --
The veins stand out like highways --
A shield against the enemy --
I love you, Leonard --
A sacred kind of conversation --
The hallelujah of the orgasm --
The places where I used to play --

From this broken hill --
Love and theft --
Taxes, children, lost pussy --
The future of rock 'n' roll --
Here I stand, I'm your man --
A manual for living with defeat.
In this biography the author explores the facets of Cohen's life from his early childhood in Montreal, to his entree into the worlds of literature and music, his immersion in Jewish culture, obsession with Christian imagery, and deep commitment to Buddhist detachment, including the five years he spent at a monastery outside of Los Angeles and his ordainment as a Rinzai Zen Buddhist Monk. The author draws on research that includes Cohen's personal archives and more than one hundred exclusive interviews with those closest to Cohen, from his lovers, friends, monks, professors, rabbis, and fellow musicians to his muses, including Rebecca DeMornay, Marianne Ihlen, Suzanne Elrod, and Suzanne Verdal.
